Possible Loans

How can I get approved for a loan?

Possible’s algorithms determine the amount that can be safely lent to each applicant

Here are some tips for increasing your chances of approval:

  • Bank account balance: you should have a positive bank balance; the higher your bank account balance is when you apply, the better!
  • Minimum monthly income: an income of at least $750 per month is ideal.
  • Consistency of income deposits over time: the more, the merrier!
  • Returned checks or insufficient funds (NSF) fees: keep these to a minimum; frequent returns could be a sign that payments to Possible will be returned too.
  • Maintain a healthy amount of 'available credit'. Having multiple loans could mean that you're overextended.
  • Previous loan repayment history with Possible: the best way to increase your loan offer amount is to repay your Possible loans on time, without any returns.
  • Monthly cash flow analysis: if your account is being drained too quickly, your loan offer amount may be decreased to prevent overdraft and insufficient funds (NSF) fees.

Please note that while we do our best to help as many of our customers as Possible, completing the prior steps does not guarantee approval.


Can I get a higher amount?

We can't change the loan agreement after it has been accepted, including the amount financed.

Possible’s loan algorithm does its best to make sure we aren't over-lending to you. If payments become too difficult to pay it can cause expensive overdraft fees and negatively impact your credit score. We look at a variety of things, including real-time data, such as, recent income and current bank balance before making a decision.

If you were approved for less than you applied for, we apologize for any disappointment. The amount you select during the application process gives Possible a target to reach for but it isn't guaranteed.

Once you've established a positive borrowing history with Possible, you are more likely to be approved for more. However, we can't guarantee approval or an increase in amount.


Can I change my deposit account?

For security purposes, your loan deposit must be sent to the bank account you used to apply with.

Unfortunately Possible is not able to disburse your loan to a different bank account at this time, for your security. If you want to make your payments with a different account you are more than welcome to add a new bank account for payments after you have received your deposit. All you have to do is link your new account in the app.


When will I get my loan?

The amount of time your money will take to arrive depends on how you've selected to receive it. You can receive your money through an ACH transaction or with a debit card.

Money sent by ACH takes 1-2 business days (not including Saturdays, Sundays, or bank holidays) to arrive in your account.

ACH transactions take a little time due to the way automatic transactions work. If it's your expected arrival date and you haven't received your money yet, don't worry! Some banks just take a little longer to process pending transactions. Your money is on its way and should arrive by 5pm PST.

How do you know if you'll receive it in 1 business day, or 2?

If you accept your loan before 2pm PST, you will receive your money the next business day.

If you accept your loan after 2pm PST, you will receive money in 2 business days.

For example:

If you accept your loan on Thursday night or on Friday, your money will arrive on Monday.

If you accept your loan over the weekend, it will be after 2pm on Friday, so your money will arrive on Tuesday.

If you have a compatible debit card and you haven’t already chosen to receive your money by automatic bank deposit, or ACH, you can add your debit card to receive your money within an hour.

To do this, click on the option to add your debit card. Regardless of the day or time, you should receive your money with an hour with the debit card option. However, please keep in mind that sometimes delays occur and funds can take up to four hours to arrive.

Please note that if you are seeing an error while adding your debit card, you will need to use ACH to receive your funds.

Note: Some debit cards may be incompatible at this time. If you're unable to link your debit card, you can still select to receive your money via automatic bank deposit, or ACH.

Things to keep in mind

An error in your bank account or routing number could mean that your money will not arrive on time.

Please double-check the last 4 digits of the bank account number on file (you can do so under the profile tab in the app).

If you believe there is an error or you have not received your money by 5 pm PST on the displayed arrival date, please reach out to our Customer Success team using the Contact Us form in the app. We will help you sort out the issue so you can get your money as soon as possible!
